Information we collect:
We collect information to provide the best possible experience when you use our Services. Much of what you consider personal data is collected directly from you when you:
- Purchase any of our Dog Services (e.g.: billing information, including name, address);
- request updates (e.g.: telephone number);
- complete contact forms from us (e.g.: email)
However, we also collect additional information when delivering our Services to you to ensure necessary and optimal performance. These methods of collection may not be as obvious, so we wanted to explain what these might be and how they work:
Account related information is collected in association with your use of our Services, such as services you have purchased, when services renew or expire, information requests and notes or details on our interactions.
How we use information:
We strongly believe in both reducing the amount of data we collect and limiting the use and purpose of that data to only:
- Data for which we need to support your service
- Data necessary to deliver the Services you have purchased
- Data we might be required or permitted to keep for legal compliance or other lawful purposes.

We only share your personal data as necessary for any third party to provide the services as requested or as needed on our behalf. These third parties are subject to strict data processing terms and conditions and are prohibited from utilising, sharing or retaining your personal data for any purpose other than as they have been specifically contracted for. All third party providers are certified (GDPR) compliant as of the 25th May 2018.
How we secure, store, and retain your data:
We follow generally accepted standards to store and protect the personal data we collect, both during transmission and once received and stored, including utilisation of encryption where appropriate.
We retain personal data only for as long as necessary to provide the Services you have requested and thereafter for a variety of legitimate legal or business purposes.
These might include retention periods:
- mandated by law, contract, or similar obligations applicable to our business operations;
